Jim and I presented on " href="http://ajaxworld.com/event/session/13">Using Comet to
create a Two-Player Web Game" at href="http://ajaxworld.com">Ajax World 2008 West
yesterday. The talk explained the basic concepts of Comet, showed how a
Tic Tac Toe game can be easily created using code walkthrough and then
talked about future directions. The slides are available href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/resource/confs/comet-ajaxworld-west-2008.pdf">here
and the code can be downloaded href="http://weblogs.java.net/blog/driscoll/archive/2008/05/comet_tictactoe_1.html">here.




A similar sample that can be deployed on Rails and Grails is described href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/tic_tac_toe_using_rails">here.
It uses GlassFish's support for multiple dynamic languages and
associated web frameworks.



One of the benefits of delivering first talk in the morning is the
ability to attend different sessions during the day. Of the different
sessions I particularly enjoyed listening Bill Scott on href="http://ajaxworld.com/event/session/30">Crafting Rich
Web Interfaces.The talk explained six principles of rich web
interaction with set of design patterns and real world examples. The
slides are available href="http://billwscott.com/share/presentations/2008/ajaxworld/">here.
All other sessions were mostly product pitches with very little value
for developers.



Here are some pictures from the show:
